requiring as a matter of law that north carolina coastal policy be based on historic rates of sea level rise rather than on what north carolina scientists actually preaddict. this means that even though north carolina scientists predict 39 inches of sea level rise within the century, north carolina by its own law is only allowed to prepare for eight. king canute would be so proud. further down, the south carolina department of natural resources wrote a report more than a year ago on the risks climate change poses to the palmetto state, but it was never released to the public. the state newspaper managed to obtain a copy of that study. the report calls for south carolina to prepare for increases in wildlife disease, loss of prime hunting habitat and the invasion of nonnative species, but to republicans, these are more problems which shall not be named. in south dakota, the republican legislature in 2010 even passed a nonbinding resolution calling for teaching in public schools that relies on a number of common and thoroughly debunked climate denier claims. in short, bringing climate denier pr

of law. [applause] and on the life question, it's really pretty simple. i went through the toughest election of my life last fall. i had tracking cameras around me from st. patrick's day until november 6th, one to three cameras always focused on me trying to get a second or a minute that they could run against me in an ad. they didn't get a single second that they could run against me, not one second, by the way. [applause] but they're in the business of trying to undermine and weaken us, and i didn't back up on any principle. we debated the issue of life, and i said my opponent, my leftist opponent cannot answer two questions on life. is human life sacred in all of its forms? yes, it is. and at what moment does life begin? the instant of conception. and the people on the other side of this question dare not answer either one of those questions. they know they lose the debate. i stood on life, and i stood on marriage -- [applause] and the thing that a bunch of people that have been backing away from these challenges don't seem to realize that i'm still standing.

borrow the money and pay your check because your entitled to it as a matter of law, at a certainagers you qualify. -- at a certain age, you qualify. if your income is below a certain level, you're entitled to the money. whether uncle sam has it or not. that's based on law. that's based on legislation that congress passed that entitles people that under certain circumstances to obtain federal money. and get it as a matter of entitlement. and so when those programs are surging at 6% a year, medicaid, the poor person's insurance program, is projected to go to -- to grow 8% a year over the next decade, 117% over the next ten years, when those programs are going at that rate and the economy is growing at 2%, you have got a problem. you don't have to go to the harvard business school to know that. you really don't have to go to harvard to know that. when i talk to the american people, they understand it fully. they expect that we are really going to have to make tough choices in this country to get the country on the right path, and they are girding themselves to support such tough choices, but
and we've tried to tackle both of those in our acquisition reform bill which is now law and which is taking some time to take hold. >> want to take advantage of my time for a minute and jump around a bit. we're talking about afghanistan but how do you think history is going to judge the obama administration's decision not to intervene in any significant military fashion in syria? 70,000 dead as you know and several million refugees. >> i think it's way too early how to predict how history is going to judge whether our policy is right. it's not too early to know how history will judge assad. that's easy. but in terms of whether or not we have proceeded in a more deliberate way than some would want us to, and probably a little more than i would want us to if you want to get into that, nonetheless the goal here is to make sure that what happens after assad is, is stable, is diverse, is not chaotic. that the right people are the ones that take over when assad goes. and that's, that's a matter of putting in place, if possible, a kind of an interim political coalition, which will have b
years. it was a law. every reasonable political observer admits the budget control act which had the force of law was a budget, period, but no because it was -- it was not a resolution, it was a law, which is much stronger than any resolution we do here. they have yelled and screamed, as i've indicated. still, republicans pined for the days of the so-called regular order and the senate would vote on a budget resolution that would set spending priorities for the fiscal year. republicans, we were told, we heard, we saw, were desperate to have a budget debate, desperate. let's -- and had charts out here. they were desperate for an amendment. they wanted a vote-a-rama, and they had charts, speeches and demonstrations to prove it. they had, mr. president, press conference after press conference after press conference. they even had a calendar that they brought out here almost daily telling the days since the senate passed a budget resolution -- not a law which was already in effect but a resolution. i was amazed yesterday, i mean amazed, flabbergasted, stunned when republicans blocked
with the administrative law judge. his decision two days after it was over, he said unequivocally ems was right. the testimony by the union are unbelievable and contrived. we won the decision and all the unfair labor practices they filed against the state filed 50 against us were thrown out. two days after that, that decision was appealed not by the seiu but by the united states government. you have to understand the link, the union's money is a money come. it is support certain politicians to get into office and they use it to payback unions and that is what happened at the national labor relations board. that is why they appealed the decision and it took almost a year but finally went to the board of the national labor relations board and we won the decision 3-0. our people were happy. the sad thing is people all over the midwest with other companies didn't stand up like we did and people are now subjected to this and they are paying union dues and not making any more money. i am here today because i want to help people. their goal is survival. and the public needs to know what is going on. w
. the message for the president is that no one person gets to decide the law. no one person gets to decide your guilt or innocence. my question, my question to the president was about more than just killing americans on american soil. my question was about whether presidential power has limits. [applause] lincoln put it well when he wrote, nearly all men can stand adversity but if you want to test a man, give him power. president obama who seemed once upon a time to respect civil liberties has become the president who signed a law allowing for indefinite detention of an american citizen. indeed a law that allows an american citizen to be sent to guantÁnamo bay without a trial. president obama defends the signing of this bill by stating that he is no intention of detaining an american citizen without a trial. likewise he defended possible target -- targeted drone strikes on americans by indicating he had no intention of doing so. my 13 hour filibuster was a message to the president. good intentions are not enough. [applause] the presidential i will protect to serve and defend the constitution.
for the business, and with a roomful of attorneys and law professor. i'm sure you're familiar with the duty of care and loyalty. it's a to read your manual and the responsibility related to being a good board member and the duty of loyalty. the duty to the company above your personal interest and that includes the conflict of interest for non-profit. there's an additional duty of obedience to the mission. and tamyra asked me to mention today my own concept of an additional duty of duty of imagination. ting fits here. which is what i think. so if the sneed business had a board and followed the duty of care and locality. they could follow their responsibility, they could have a good audit and follow every rule and regulation perfectly fine. there's little regulation related to ecosystems, in fact. and they could have no conflict of interest on the board. they can be doing their job perfectly fine. the question, the issue is here, the duty of imagination, which is where do we see this business in the future? where are we taking this organization? what is the greater potential in the future long-term v
suggestions there. there's a number of states where unions have exemptions from antistalking laws. so pennsylvania, a number of other states, special exemption from anti-stalking laws just for unions. and that allows the unions to put a lot of pressure not just on employers like dave, but on individual employees. and i think those exemptions ought to be removed. there's also a lot of exemptions from the anti-extortion laws for unions. so there's another rico violation being prosecuted in upstate new york in the syracuse area where you had, basically, the building and construction departments were going and doing s like pouring -- things like pouring sand into the heavy equipment in a lot of nonunion place operators and basically telling them, hey, you've got to the hire them, or we're going to see to it the project doesn't get built. the union's basically -- [inaudible] but we have an exemption from the federal anti-extortion laws, and you can't prosecute us from doing this. and the kicker is they're right. they may be prosecuted under the state anti-extortion statutes, but that's som
and medicine and unhealthy food and unsafe and unhealthy workplaces. if i said that maybe we should have a law protecting people from being harassed if they are gay or lesbian. if i said that we should have some kind of national health insurance, if i said that what we need in this country is an end to lynching and the right for african-americans to have the right to vote, all of those things and many more you think i was a utopian. you would think i was maybe somewhat crazy. i was unrealistic, i was impractical or maybe i was even a bolshevik or communist or socialist. and everything i just said is now taken for granted, things that our society accepts as normal. so one of the themes of my book is that the radical ideas of one generation are often the common sense of the next or subsequent generation. and the book is really about the 100 americans who made that happen. so people who helped to build the labor movement, help to build the women's suffrage and the women rights movement, helped to build the civil rights movement, the environmental movement, the gay and lesbian rights movement, the
we were working with law enforcement and other advocates to try to get across that point, and clearly it's still an issue. it's still something that not everyone understands particularly people who have not been in your situation. i was amazed to see that in your statistics that they brought forward, one in three convicted sex offenders remain in the military, and that the only branch of the service that says they danger -- discharge all sex offenders is the navy. it seems to me that's a pretty basic bar we should think about as we look at people who have been convicted of rape and sexual assault. miss bhagwati, we hear there's a connection between resistance to pursue sexual crimes and careerism among military officers, there's concern for the reputation of the accused and the commanding officer. those concerns have been presented as reasons to frustrate the efforts to bring criminals to justice. so i wonder if you could talk more, you've made several recommendations in your testimony. how can we more effectively show that covering up sexual crimes is not a way to advance careers? >>
to protect intellectual property rights and there is contract law which your bill speaks to, that can convey and give consumers lots of options and lots of freedom here. so let's make sure we're not undermine intellectual property rights and we also preserving the right to contract. >> i agree with my colleagues. and also, affordability is a factor and environmental factors, you know, if you got to make all these changes every time, if you have an option to change providers. that's a good for the vibe so all those things going to play, and thank you so much for introducing that. >> i agree, would be happy to help, whether that's through the fcc or the updating the digital millennium copyright act are i think the most stunning thing those to find out about the great power of the library and of congress. spent exactly. i thought the same thing. as you referenced, senator lee has a bill simply in our also on. and i think it's a different approach and we can somehow combined them, we will all work together but i do think it's important, mr. chairman, for this committee with its jurisdiction over

health care law can have on hiv/aids. the panel also looks at some of the challenges of implementing the law. the center for american progress hosted this hour and 20 minute event. >> good morning, everybody. my name is neera tanden and i'm the president of the center for american progress. thank you for joining us this morning for this important discussion of how health reform is addressing the needs of gay and transgender communities and people living with hiv. reforming america's health care system is a massive undertaking. one of the president's advisers on health reform, i know that as we gear up for health care reform it will touch the lives of every american. that effort means it will touch the lives of the lesbian, gay and transgender community as welcome as those people living with hiv. the united states currently has 9 million -- 19 people living with hiv. hiv epidemic continues to raise and marginalize. like the uss russell, this topic is diverse. gay and transgender people live in all corners of our country and they come from families of all varieties. regardless of the d
on the number of cases that specific law -- one reason the civil case law or dhaka -- docket is down in the court is the new statutes that congress passed which produces litigation there haven't been many last year the health statued one but that took a long time to come up with to read the bankruptcy reform act was more than ten years ago dows produced pieces. new statutes passed by the congress generate. dodd-frank and the other securities act of the cases haven't seemed to produce much of those cases are beginning to work their way through the system. >> i will let one of thing that might be useful and that is i am thinking of prefiguring some memories and the problem it doesn't change much over 40 or 40 years. it's more pressing now and that it's been around for a long time and there were two things. 1i went to and the other i read many years ago that i thought were useful in this respect. one, chief justice burger used to have williamsburg conferences where he would invite members of congress, their staff as well as their judges to discuss all kinds of issues of interest

. my sister-in-law, my best friend. i grew up around teachers and having an incredible respect for the difficult job that they have every day. and i still surrounded by teachers to this day. and i think that it is because i have such respect for teachers and told them in such regard i have a tremendous believe for what they can do and the power that they have, and i refuse to believe what many folks these days say which is if kids are coming from difficult situations and poverty there is nothing the schools can do. i roundly reject that notion. i think that when children are in the classrooms of truly effective teachers even despite the fact they may face a lot of obstacles those kids can achieve the highest levels and so we should aspire to nothing short as a nation making sure every single kid is in the classroom with a highly effective teacher every single day. it's no less than what we would want for our own children and nothing different than we should want for the nation's kids. >> michelle, if the united states spends the most per capita, per student with the rank and 25

the health care law and increase the cost of care to our seniors, throw students off of their parents' plans, cost tens of millions more americans to be uninsured and put the insurance companies back in charge of patients' care. our budget rejects that approach, and it builds on the health care law to continue reducing costs responsibleably increasing efficiencies and improving care. our budget also maintains the key principle that every other bipartisan group has maintained but that has been rejected by the house republicans. we don't think the burden of deficit reduction should be unfairly borne by the most vulnerable children and families who have already sacrificed so much. everyone in america needs to be a part of this solution, but the house republican approach would shred the safety net that has offered a hand up to millions of families across america, including my own when we needed it, and, mr. president, we reject that approach. the budget we are considering this week also makes the investments we need to keep our military strong, to protect our communities and environment and upho
is good. stanford's law office burns in a fire, he loses his files, he loses his law books, and he decides i don't want to be a lawyer, i'm going to california. he goes to california and joins his brothers. he borrows money from them, he opens a shop in the mountains called stanford and smith and sells to miners. stanford is a taciturn businessman. he's practically wordless. anybody who met him reported the same thing, he has five words an hour. he is laconic to the point of pathology. [laughter] but he's an amiable behind the cash register, and he deals straight, and so he succeeds rapidly as a shopkeeper. he moves his shop to sacramento, the capital of california. now, the capital of california in the mid 1850s had the enormous population of 12,000 people. it's a cow town, but he becomes the grocer in town who sells the best goods. next door to him there's another shop which is a hardware store called huntington and hopkins run by a couple of guys who sell hardware. and one day in 1858 hopkins, stanford and huntington receive this salesman who's coming through town trying to pump up the

of the national hiv aids strategy and a health reform law on hiv aids care in the united states. honestly an important connection for us today. this includes policy from the george washington university and a master's degree from the woodrow wilson school of public and international affairs. and a master's degree in political science from the university of massachusetts. the doctor's degree is from dartmouth college. doctor, you are invited to take the podium. [applause] >> thank you. i first want to thank the senator for making progress and including me in this important work that they are doing and making that link between looking at lgbt health and hiv and a portal to act. we started off with president obama giving a historic speech speech in 2011 at ending the aids epidemic at some point in our lifetime. this was quite a moment. the moment of opportunity and optimism that i want to start with. the reason the president obama made that statement is because we have a combination that together is something that could turn the tide on epidemics. we also have a national strategy that the w
studied this issue in some depth and pointed out regardless of what congress says with respect to the law and what we do with respect to our will, it wouldn't hurt forced update some of our guidance to broadcasters be some that guidance has been updated since 1963 and is still talks about the fact that the expensive kinescope print that used to produce a film might want sponsorship identification t. i think there's things we could do internally to provide greater clarity for industry. >> that sounds like a maybe-yes. in which case need one more vote. [laughter] >> need three votes. now, this is a great consequence to the political sphere of how it was influenced by undisclosed, unlimited money. thank you, mr. chairman spent will the senator yield to a question? >> to my chairman, of course. >> it's a fascinating question, and it goes to the very root of the integrity of democracy. and there were two fairly, one fairly clear, one fairly clear yes, and then it was sort of a yes maybe and then, there's no complexity to the question. there's no way, cerebrally, to avoid answering his question
discretionary spending. then what is agreed to infil law that came at the end of that dreadful process of holding the debt ceiling hostage. so unilaterally declared that to the floor for cuts and not a ceiling and now it is a way of avoiding the sequestration of the defense budget to the remarkable set of additional cutbacks and means tested programs of one sort or another. i even solve the most analytic reporters that david rogers of politico showed in the course of writing about that. and of course we had yesterday a successful republican filibuster on the senate democratic plan extending the law were student loan rate in financing it in a particular way. i know in "the new york times" this is the 21st successful republican filibuster in this congress. most of it is not if you will consequential and the filibuster was in the first two years because there was a republican house and democratic wishes from the white house and the senate are not likely to be realized but the fact is that it has been so commonplace and it's taken for granted in most press reports the word filibuster never
and authorized in law. make sure the 16,000 marines on guam have the most basic things that they need to be safe and healthy and come home and act like we want them to be, as safe as possible. that is what this is about. i urge my colleagues to vote against the mccain amendment, and i yield the floor. and suggest the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: quorum call: mr. durbin: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from illinois. mr. durbin: i ask unanimous consent that the quorum call be suspended. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. durbin: i ask unanimous consent that the time until 5:30 p.m. for debate on the mccain amendment be equally divided between snores mccain and -- senators mccain and myself oregon designees and that at 5:30, the senate proceed to a vote in relation to the mccain amendment, there be no amendments in order to the amendment prior to the vote. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. durbin: mr. president, i want to -- i don't know if senator mccain is near is by, but if he is, i want to give h
so hard for that. i was so proud of president obama signing it into law last week. that law recognizes every human being, every human being male, female deserves protection from violence and it sends a clear and unequivocal message that wherever a sexual assault occurs madam chairman whether on a college campus or on an indian reservation or in a religious setting or in our military, yes the offender must be punished. sexual assault is a heinous and violent crime and it must be treated as such. it isn't an internal matter. it is it is a violent crime and that must be treated as such. and i want to thank each and everyone of you for supporting the boxer cornyn amendment that says no the military cannot take offenders, people who have been convicted of sexual assault into the military. that will help us going forward but we need to do much more. we know this crisis is staggering and despite some important reforms by the department of defense and i thank them for those, they are trying to improve prevention, investigation, prosecution but still too many military sex offenders g
a new very well with our relationship he served more terms as president he declared martial law. a revolution was possible and then on dialysis. one was said of the naval forces had retired. john reed was the head of citicorp in the philippines. we had dinner with the president i decided i would wait until dinner was over. [laughter] use step down at the top of the game rather than and lose. i will win the election but nobody would believe that. step down while you can. he went on and the election was held there was uprising and it went to hell and to take him out by a helicopter where he died. how many insurance companies provide those services to the country? [laughter] there are many others. but the point* is to say how different we were in the valuable assets to the country. thousands of people made that possible. the second part is what happened. new york disgraced attorney general, than decided there was a lot on the books called the martin act enacted 1921 designed to go after bootleggers, it is silent as to intent. if you accuse somebody of a fraudulent act, he took the
during his time working on his law degree at the university of miami. a time to reflect and look forward happens in any party that loses, but it doesn't lessen the sting when you're the recipient. mr. priebus has been working on a way to rally the faithful and plot a new strategy for the midterm election in 2014 and presidential contest in 2016. one of the silver linings which happened along the way is getting reelected as party chairman. to create a playbook for his silver lining, he also commissioned an inward look to see why the party failed to win and how to get a different result next time. so what did he come up with? he said yesterday on cps' "face the nation" that the rnc will spend $10 million on staff to communicate its principles across the u.s., shorten the time spent on election primaries, move up the convention date and limit the number of primary debates. findings on the so-called occupancy are what brings him here this morning. he's also celebrating his 42nd birthday here on our stage. >> 43. >> 41, i'm sorry. [laughter] young enough that it won't make a difference. to ce
-- laws your hard was it to get to next and when you wrote about him in the 50's? >> i get a lot of credit to timothy who was the director of the nixon library. a lot of stuff was open and you can go down there and go through this coming you can go to the archives and find the more time you spend, the more things you would discover. i began to get fascinated by the notes that mix and wrote on the yellow pad he would write down almost -- ki was like an a student. everything he did and saw he would take notes. eisenhower did him a big favor in the fall all throughout asia and in vietnam he met the emperor and they basically said he saw the future in a way he didn't like it, but you can see nixon reflecting and being resentful and when he saw that eisenhower was trying to get rid of him in 1956 he was writing down things. it's the president's choice, for the good of the party to the issue is basically writing his own sort of speech. he never said it but you could find all these things and it's all there and you've got to keep looking. the other thing that is important, and tama could talk abo
of experience and expertise from something police agencies, other federal law enforcement agencies and state district attorney's offices. special victim prosecutors serve the interests and rights of the victim, the community safety interest, and the good order discipline of the unit i holding offenders accountable. testimonials from victims and their families attest to the dedicated support these attorneys provide, such as that from a victims mother who described it as a member of her family who made her daughter feel stronger and more capable than she knew she could feel. 11 years of war have reaffirmed that commanders have a central role in administering military justice. in the same way that they are accountable for health, training, welfare, safety, morale, discipline, and mission readiness. a recent court-martial conviction set aside by a commander has focused concern over the posttrial role of the commander. should we evaluate needed changes to the posttrial role? absolutely. we collectively evaluate military justice, processes and procedures in an ongoing forum, the joint city committ
enforcing prohibition and they had to start enforcing traffic laws, there was resistance from citizens. and to see how, what was once a cooperative relationship between citizens and police really changed once police had to start ticketing people for driving or making arrests for people who were drinking liquor. alcohol was banned in virginia a few years before national legislation was passed. there were people who believed that if they could just go out onto a poet in the potomac and consume liquor, then that was not illegal because they weren't technically in virginia. earlier the alexandria police department didn't need a lot of vehicles. they didn't need a lot of motorcycles. it was a pretty small area they were responsible for patrolling, and so to see the size of alexandria double and then double again in a matter of pretty much 20 years really changed the department, increased staffing, more vehicles and then, ultimately, they had to move to a new police station pause they just couldn't fit in their original station house. one of the stories that i found really interesting is how
interesting things about the way pat and law has evolved in this country. one thing that i have learned in doing the research for my book is that the idea that an invention is some brand new idea to a sort of incorrect because, of course, everything comes from what came before. in fact, in my mind that is one of the key points about tinkering. tinkering is actually taking what is around you and trying to make something new out of it. even though lazar bugs upper which intellectual ventures have developed, bits of me that they actually built it out of spare parts from consumer electronics that they bought off the date. so, you know, i think that was something that they wanted to do a lot of waste. so, you know, i understand people come up with a great idea and are free we're going to steal it, but the reality is that it does not usually work that way. usually people tried steal it once it's already successful. so if you can get to that point they have i class problem. so, you know, i think it's natural for people, especially young people to think that what they've come up with, you know,
by 2015 to achieve i think it's 35% efficiency. it's a law. i don't know about the -- zonal enough about the ins and outs of washington, when you ask a lot don't you have to do something? so it is happening, it's a law so that would be important and it would give benefit aside from environmental benefits, benefit to the taxpayers because you would be paying 30% less for energy for all the government holdings and it would set off the market in spill into the private market. people would think about it more. in terms of renewables, another thing people don't know is can the energy department. the u.s. energy department said i 2017, wind power to generate a kilowatt of wind power's going to be at parity with coal and it's going to be cheaper than nuclear power. this is not me. this is the energy department. now solar is more expensive but solar has also been coming down very dramatically so it's not bite 2017 and some people think it will be but solar power will be a parody. the only source of energy at which renewables will not be across parity is fracking, natural gas. this technology fra
the library and soldering but i think that you will in the future because the law which can come from all different directions and you always need to know how to solder if you are going to put something up in the technology to get there. succumb also i mentioned what westport has posted and i know there is another one coming up in april. just a great way to see what different people from different walks of life are working on. i know that i went with my kids to the last one and we saw all sorts of stuff. here are some photographs of the 3g printers that kids were making fun stuff with and i know one of the biggest was from the last year with the basketball playing a robot's which were astonishingly accurate that were controlled by high school students a bill to them with laptops and what is interesting is that the robots were built as part of the first robotics competition which is something that yadin actually founded. so, again, there are all of these -- it is not just that there is a lot of tinkering among them going on, but there are a lot of interesting efforts out there right now to
of the national archives to try to get back to tapes, congress intervened and passed a special law at the nixon library's the only library governed by one law, presidential recordings of 1974. that will stick to that first of all that we, members of the public, had the right to get any information about the use of government power. but also protected. president nixon, former now, president nixon and sued, it was a long struggle, it took years. and, in fact, only now are the tapes coming out. when i was there we released about 630 hours. there's another big dump of import material coming out i hope this year. it's taken years for the staff to come up, and that's because of richard nixon and his estate. so they did not want these tapes to come out. the same with the papers. nixon sued the national archives, and it dragged down. in fact, when i was there there were 35,000 pages that are found in the fault that i got out that had been put in there because the national archives is afraid of what richard nixon and others reaction would be. didn't change the world. there's of other really good mentor
money's worth of a student, i am in favor of that. >> what do you teach in law school? >> criminal call and also in the college of riss school of public affairs. >> host: what are you teaching? >> guest: society. >> host: what sparked you to say this is why exceed in college. >> host: i'm beginning to see i was seeing the same problems over and over again. things like not understanding how to side material and inadvertently getting themselves into plagiarism. they would come in and see this great new world that is college and take advantage of everything in the classroom. and i regularly immelt my students of henson. i began to see that i was sending the same females out year after year and i thought it's time to write the book therefore i can say i don't have to keep sending the e-mails. >> host: what is the best thing that parents can do to protect their kids? >> guest: one is the academic side and the best thing students can do to prepare for colleges reading and writing and i know that sounds old school but it's true today as it was when i went to college that's the best thing we ca
